West Ham Rue Missed Opportunity

|

West Ham United‘s recent struggles have us all wondering what might have been. The team’s poor form since January has seen them fall out of European contention, and a report suggests a missed transfer target could be to blame.

David Moyes opted to let attacking players Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals leave in January, needing replacements to bolster his squad.

According to The Guardian, West Ham had the chance to sign Wilfried Zaha on a free transfer in January. However, manager David Moyes reportedly felt Zaha wouldn’t be a significant addition.

Zaha ultimately joined Galatasaray and has enjoyed a productive season with 10 goals and 5 assists in all competitions.

Prior to that he had a most impressive Premier League record, with 68 goals and 32 assists. His dribbling ability and also his reputation as a nightmare for defenders

Who knows? But Zaha’s presence could have made a significant difference for West Ham. We might have secured a top-six finish and even challenged for the Europa League title.

West Ham’s decision to forego Zaha may well be a source of regret as we reflect on our disappointing season.
